Not rude, I think we were about 7 to 8 weeks along with our first when my husband and I told family and friends.  Plus it was just before Christmas when we found out so it made a great Christmas "present/surprise" for our mothers.  I am currently 16 weeks along with our second child and my husband spilled the beans at 6 weeks.  I would have preferred he waited a week or two but he was just so excited.  If others are offended by good news it's on them, not you.  If someone mentioned miscarriage to me that early I might just start leaving them out of the "loop" on the baby.  Which probably puts me in E-hell but these days I have no time or patience for "negative nellies".

Congrats to you!  Enjoy your pregnancy and ignore others rudeness.

Congrats OP!  You were absolutely not rude for telling them and they were VERY rude.  I am 14 weeks now and refused to let my DH even tell his family until 12 weeks because they are a bunch of blabbermouths (although in a clueless not malicious way) and didn't want to chance it getting out on my Facebook page.  We did tell my parents and my best friend but that was IT because I was scared of a miscarriage and didn't want to have to tell everyone (because of my age, it is also riskier for me).  Now that I'm farther along I have told everyone but would have been FURIOUS if anyone had said what your relatives did.  It was bad enough when I mentioned to a friend how much I have been cramping and she got worried right away b/c the only time she had cramps she miscarried.  I told her my doctor said it was fine and normal as long as i wasn't bleeding.  She left it along after that.
